Cards Inspiration with Martha

Happy Monday dear friends! Martha Lucia here with a special card for you! I love summer, I love flowers and I love to make cards for you. My project today is a card to show you one of the beautiful sides of Catalina Island 300 and some die cuts of flowers that coordinate with this.
A few weeks ago I showed you the same paper, the Catalina Island 300 that today I am using. You can see this post here, but in this opportunity I only use a little part and today I want to show you the beautiful combination and big flowers that this side offered. If you note, this has inside a delicate lines that simulate the splash of water, perfect for this summer.
To decorate my card I used the same base of cardstock and a small piece of Gypsy Road 300 paper to create a banner. I pasted in this banner a flower that I made using various laser cut dies from prior Club Q that coordinate with the entire Catalina Island Collection. I made some doodles with baker's twine and die cut a sentiment in white card stock and foamy to give more dimension.

Two Page Inspiration with Donna

Hello, Donna here with a two page layout. It's been a while since I've done a two pager and I forgot how great they are to do.

First of all you can use tons of pictures, I like it because it is good to group all those odd and ends (pictures) that you have leftover from an event, such as this one of my daughter and children camping.

Here are close ups of the pages. When I was done I kept looking at and knew it needed something. By just adding the green border on the top and bottom it really made the layout pop! I love the coordinating chipboard pieces, what a fun way to add some depth to the layout.
The title are wood pieces I got on sale at my local scrapbook store, they looked great just plain, but by adding some Quick Quotes Powderpuff ink helps bring in all the colors. 
Products Used:
PowderPuff Chalk Ink - Seafoam

I used Alton 100 to die cut the happy birthday and used PowderPuff Chalking Ink in Cherry blossom to add the sentiment. Then I stamped my image on Alton 100, I cut out the people's clothes and glued them on.

The birthday die cuts turned out awesome using Alton 100!

Gift Inspiration with Martha

Hello everyone, Martha Lucia here wishing you a wonderful day! Today I have another out of page to share with you. I created a big box using the a complete page of Joy Ride 300 paper and some pieces of Celebrate 400 and Gypsy Road 300 to decorate my box. I also used some beautiful flowers from Petaloo. Let me show you my project first.


To create my box I used the Gift Box Punch Board from Stampin Up. This is very easy to use, I just followed the instructions that come stamped on the board.
  • The size of my box is 4"x4"x4", and I used a 12"x 12" decorated paper.
  • I decided to use the side of mail seals of Joy Ride 300.
  • After I created the box, I just inked the borders with Peach Tree PowderPuff Chalk Ink.
  • To make the decorations I used a white doily to cover the base and I also cut a second doily using die cut from DieNamites called Holiday Wreath.
  • For this I used the yellow side of Celebrate 400 paper.
  • I pasted both doilies with dimensionals or double side foam tape.
  • I also cut two branches, one from Gypsy Road 300 and the second from Celebrate 400.
  • These were cut using the Grassy Cattails Die Cut from DieNamites.

I pasted all with dimension and finally I pasted the three different flowers from Petaloo and one great sentiment from Joy Ride Die Cut Stickers. One important thing I did was that I kept the closure of my box on the bottom so that I can open and close the box easily.

July Club Q with Alicia

Good morning Quick Quotes readers!  
Alicia with you today with some Club Q inspiration. The last time I played with Club Q I kept all the product in each package with the pieces for that project. This time for something different I opened up every piece and mixed them all up.   

I had been playing with some pictures of my grandfather and decided on these baseball photos.  You can't get more patriotic than Army baseball!  Unfortunately, my grandfather has passed and I really don't know much of his story.  He was career Army, enlisting in 1943 and as far as I can tell leaving in 1968.  His Army photographs cover a wide range of places and years.

Quick Quotes Products Used:
Blue Moon Powder Puff Chalking Ink

Other Ingredients: 
Creative Memories Alphas
Tim Holtz Label Die
